Five Favorite Suspense/Thriller Books by Morgan St. James
While I read books in many genres, and my favorites are subject to change, I must say they usually are suspense or thrillers with a tad of humor. Another compelling thing for me in choosing favorites is the excellent description of locations, neighborhoods, etc. as well as fully rounded characters. Just enough detail to make you feel the author knows the locations in the book and characters who feel real. The books below all have some or all of these elements and I enjoyed them thoroughly. I used the criteria of whether I would read the book more than once. For the books listed, yes I have or would.
